    If you are looking to try and figure out which of our birds are roosters, feel free to take good pictures (from the side and of the comb) and post them in the "What breed and gender?" forum. Hopefully someone will be able to help you out, although I know silkies can be very hard to sex.

    Silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. You may want to wait longer before rehoming them - they could be pullets. You could post photos on the "Silkie thread," and see what the breeders there think.
